Welcome also to my book: don’t follow the herd


 don’t follow the herd is a true story that must be told …

     On September 11, 2002, after a long and fruitless search for help, a professor of medicine said I had six months to live. I had contracted the bird flu virus at a Queensland airport. It invaded both lungs and modern medicine could not help. He said: “Get your papers in order and organise oxygen and a wheel chair”.
     The virus gave me emphysema and bronchiectasis, blood pressure, headaches, fever and nausea. It also came with a blood disease, hepatitis, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. Having no immune system, I contracted two strains of Ross River fever and Barmah forest virus. I was smashed.
     After visiting dozens of doctors, specialists and therapists of all descriptions, and after a myriad x-rays, scans, hospital visits, drugs, supplements and magnetic therapy, matters seemed hopeless. In desperation I had tried almost everything.
     On March 4, 2003, I met a phenomenal natural therapist: Elias Schindelar. We began working together and within 12 weeks, with his help and knowledge, the bird flu virus and some of the other viruses and diseases were dead. There was no need to take drugs or supplements and there were no gadgets: just good old fashioned natural therapy, good food and logical information from Elias.
     I soon discovered people traveled the world to visit him. He connects the entire body, from the tip of the head to the soles of the feet, through the nerve system. His methods and success rates are amazing.
     Many of my symptoms disappeared during the first five months. The healing process was outstanding and I was over the moon. But the thought of the multitude of people with viruses and problems who did not have access to this honest, simple and vital information tormented me.

     With Elias’s support I began writing about why and how we get sick and why and how the body can heal itself. Six years later, this family book is called: don’t follow the herd. I have met so many of Elias’s clients who also healed themselves. One chapter is dedicated to their stories and how they healed breast, spine, lymph, liver and many other cancers; diabetes; brain tumour; and ADHD. Read about vaccinations; influenza A virus; leukaemia, regrowing a severed thyroid gland; arthritis and the IVF program; autism; obesity; stress and its effect on the body; and the list goes on. Most importantly, viruses need not be feared because they can be avoided and killed.
     The science chapter explains the effects some foods have on the body, and why they cause diseases. And if the sun doesn’t cause skin cancer, what does?
     We examine: staying healthy; genetic engineering; hereditary diseases; kidney stones; menopause; antibiotics; blood donations/transfusions; blood pressure; positive and negative energy, etc.
     And to finish off, there are more than 215 recipes.
     don’t follow the herd is for everyone. Its simple language and 432 pages are packed with information. I wrote this book because I wanted to make a difference.
     Elias’s incredible knowledge and natural therapy gave me a second chance to live my life with quality. I had an almighty fight on my hands. I chose to win.

      The female louse lays her eggs on the hair shaft close to the scalp. Each egg is encased in a substance that resembles glue. When the eggs are glued into position, the parasite has the maximum chance of survival.

     Lice do not have a nerve system for the first four days of their life. This is the reason why up to 30 per cent of all eggs are unaffected by some killing agents.
     Both the louse and the egg require respiration to survive. They can both close down their breathing apparatus for 30 minutes when immersed in water. The lice close down while hair is being treated but as the hair dries, the lice recommence breathing.
     After about seven days the eggs hatch and begin feeding on blood from the scalp. They feed every three to six hours. The louse moults three times, then the adult is fully formed and ready to reproduce. A female lays three to six eggs every 24 hours. They prefer the dark and lay more eggs at night.
     Lice can camouflage their bodies. Even the eggs can change colour to match the colour of the hair. People with blond or red hair may be prone to infestation more frequently than those with brown or black hair. This is because the louse can change its colour more effectively to red and blond. Lice are easily detected in brown and black hair because they are light in colour.
     Lice will not usually survive off the body after 20 hours. However, they can survive for 10 days if the climate is hot and humid. It is just as important to clean clothes, linen, brushes, combs, hats, caps and helmets. Lice can also survive in carpets and on seats that are covered with fabric.
     How to treat lice-infested bed linen, towels and chair covers etc: Place the lice-infested items in a washing machine. Soak in very hot water and add detergent. After two hours, rinse off the dead lice and launder as usual.

•    Place a few drops of pure essential oils under the collar of clothes. This fragrance can be your own personal signature.
•    Place wooden skewers in a vase and add your choice of essential Oil. Place it safely out of the reach of children. The oil will saturate the wood and permeate the atmosphere. The fragrance will be a joy to come home too.
•    Colour co-ordinate small glazed pots to match the decor of your home. Half-fill them with balls of cotton wool. Drizzle a small amount of pure essential oil over the cotton balls and safely situate the pots throughout the home. Excellent for the office and in toilets.
•    Clothes will smell “delicious” if a few drops of Pure Essential Oils are added to the rinsing water in the washing machine.
•    Place a few drops of Pure Essential Oils in water over oil burners and place them safely around the home or office.

Handmade and Frenchmilled by House of eLidi

     Frenchmilled soaps created by House of eLidi are individually handmade. Each piece varies in weight, because the water content evaporates during the curing process. This enhances texture and prolongs their life.
     The crafted soaps by House of eLidi are unique. The collection is based on coconut oil, healing oils, pure essential oils, honey and natural moisturisers. They nearly all contain neem oil which is a healer, cleanser, moisturiser and antiseptic. We use the age-old technique of Frenchmilling which hardens them. We DO NOT use sodium laurel sulphate as a foaming agent. We use a natural plant-based foaming agent instead.
•    After using soaps by House of eLidi, stand them in a cool dry place and allow them to dry. This adds life to the soap.
•    After cooking with chilli, we recommend washing the hands thoroughly using any of our five Frenchmilled soaps.
•    All our soaps are the ultimate in body care indulgence.
